New additions to our quirky country home

I have spent these last few months decorating our spare bedroom…things are moving slowly mostly cos of the lack of time. Busy season in SI headquarters:-) I manage to sneak a moment here and there on the good old net and even a quick trip down to the Homebase this past weekend. This is our spare bedroom progress so far:

new buys

1. I bought these blackout gray blinds in hope to be installed this weekend. They were 50% off of the original price + the 15% off of this past weekend. I needed a 3 awkwardly sized pieces as my bay window is a weird one. Have to cut each one of them! Cost of all together was : A bargain for £43.20! Normally, they would cost over a £100 and more…I felt really happy about myself once I bought them.

2.I will post a picture of the new blinds fitted on my bay window shortly together with the new bedding from Fab. The bed set(duvet x 2 pillow cases) was: £28, on sale again from £34!

3. While in Homebase I couldn’t resits buying this new shower curtain. The old one was soooooo outdated and this new one fits perfectly with our old fashion, slash modern bathroom. Hombase again: £7.99 – 15% = £6.77

I also got a new bed for the spare bedroom too. My friend Al gave it to me. It was wasting time in her garage and its brand new. All I need now is a mattress. I found a few but still thinking… It’s one of those things, hmm do I spend loads of monies on a mattress that nobody will sleep on or not? On average I have people staying at ours …30 days out of 365.

bed painting

Anyway, it was in pine and I have spent last few weekends(yes, that’s correct) weekends painting it in dry/mat white! I was originally thinking of shabby chic but changed my mind and went with cold neutral tones for the hole spare bedroom. So grey, white and a bit of black it is/with a splash of colorful bedding + wall art!

prints sp bed

Lastly: These two amazing prints that hubby bought on his trip to Mexico, last year in November finally got framed. Again, that is another thing “to do” on my list. Put them on the wall. But I guess that is the last thing I will be doing…in this mess of the spare bedroom!

Hope you all had a great weekend and good start to a working week,

Lol, Ines
